Moodle: Exploiting your potential with an Effective Digital Learning Tool

5.0 last year

Comments: In my experience I have worked several times with the moodle tool both as a student doing several diploma courses and as a professor at the university where I teach and it is a tool that if you like to investigate, test and experiment with the tools has a very wide field of possibilities.

Pros:

moodle is one of the best among many e-learning tools, as well as being open source and with many customizable features adapting to the teaching models you wish to implement. Another point to highlight is that it has an extensive community that helps to develop teaching ideas being able to adapt the contents in a more efficient way.Highlighting that you can add content created in html and scorm format which allows you to develop better courses.

Cons:

What I liked most about Moodle was its flexibility and customization. The platform allows instructors to tailor it to the specific needs of their course, which makes learning more effective and relevant.Although Moodle offers many useful features, there is also one thing that needs to be worked on is that it has a linear structure which can sometimes cause the student to lose a bit of interest, so the teacher will need to make the content engaging for the student.

A Great Tool for Learning Management

5.0 last month New

Comments: This system has been good for the course I've taught.

Pros:

Moodle is easy to use. I thought moving from Blackboard would be a challenge, but the Moodle features are user-friendly, and we have a great tech team for help!

Cons:

Nothing comes to mind. We've used this system for one full year. Though I'm yet learning more about it, I've not found anything insurmountable at this time.

Got Us Online During Pandemic in Less Than 6 Days!

5.0 3 months ago

Pros:

We love our business relationship with our account manager—he handles things timely and understands our schools and their needs. Creating/uploading a course has gotten very simple. Integration with WooCommerce was a breeze. We love being able to customize the platform for our brands. We use Workspace and the regular Cloud Moodle. Workspace to supplement our programs with in-person training and Cloud Moodle for our online/live webinar continuing education courses.

Cons:

Regular support with Moodle can take a while, especially with the back-and-forth emailing. They are not very proactive to jump on a call and figure it out together. However, when it gets painfully slow - our account manager speeds up the process.

One of the best LMS of Online University

5.0 last month New

Comments: LMS such as Moodle is one of the greatest things a university could ever rely to on times when unexpected things happened not just in a certain country but all over the world. I can't imagine what it would be like to continue studying without such help, it would be harder for sure. I appreciate how Moodle was both easy for the students and professors to navigate.

Pros:

The transition of face to face classes to online classes was full of both pros and cons. It was a bit hard and I could imagine how it could be harder more so if Moodle isn't there to help our professors. It was so easy to use Moodle, it is not as intimidating as other LMS that are too complicated, something that could add more stress to the students. It was a straight-to-the-point kind of app that is indeed beginner friendly.

Cons:

There is nothing I can say against Moodle because I only have a memory of it being nothing but helpful to us students who were having a hard time transitioning from face to face classes to online classes.
